Samsung Expands Zero Client Lineup with New Desktop Endpoint

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today announced availability of its first standalone zero client desktop, the NX-N2-T, a compact and highly versatile VDI device that enables businesses to simplify and secure their desktop endpoints with built-in PCoIP® technology. Rounding out Samsung’s zero client lineup, the Samsung NX-N2-T is a VESA mountable endpoint that has the ability to support the I/O connectivity that today’s business users need, including use cases requiring up to six different USB devices.

“Our zero client product portfolio offers customers the broadest spectrum of endpoints to securely access the cloud and critical industry-specific applications, whether for large enterprises, healthcare providers, government agencies or higher education institutions,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “We’re committed to meeting the needs of these user environments, regardless of existing infrastructure and budget. Zero client solutions like the NX-N2-T Desktop are flexible and easy for businesses to deploy, maintain and manage, and are less vulnerable to security risks.”

Seamless, Secure Migration and Management

The Samsung NX-N2-T Zero Client Desktop features built-in PCoIP technology from Teradici that enables users to seamlessly connect to their organization’s VMware business cloud. This technology supports the need for businesses to simplify and secure their network endpoints with desktop intelligence baked-in to the design. The PCoIP zero client processor is used to reduce the desktop attack surface while almost eliminating the need for client-side administration. Since most software is remote and critical data is centralized, businesses are able to reduce the time and money invested in client-side administration.

Built for Adaptability, Affordability and Efficiency

Equipped with the latest Teradici chipset (Tera2), the NX-N2-T Desktop delivers up to five times the VDI pixel performance over the previous generation processor. It provides stronger security with AES 256-bit encryption and requires less power consumption, increasing efficiency and reducing energy costs. Using the included lightweight detachable stand, the NX-N2-T can be VESA mounted to a wall, the back of a monitor or hidden under a desk. This eliminates unplanned costs for mounting kits, while providing more out-of-the-box installation choices.

“The markets for VDI and emerging Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) are accelerating rapidly as today’s enterprises look to simplify desktop management, increase security and deliver a rich user experience,” said Randy Groves, CTO at Teradici. “Building on a track record of success with PCoIP zero clients, Samsung is extending its line-up of flexible, affordable zero client devices with the addition of the NX-N2-T desktop to its portfolio of popular zero-client display and zero-client stand endpoints.”

In addition to the NX-N2-T Desktop, Samsung’s Zero Client lineup features the NB-NH stand and NC Series displays. The NB-NH transforms business monitors into VDI access devices by integrating the latest VDI endpoint technology into the base of the monitor stand. Samsung’s NC Series zero client lineup is a class of professional-grade monitors specially designed to provide an all-in-one solution for desktop virtualization and cloud computing.

Price and Availability

The new NX-N2-T Zero-Client Desktop is now available with MAP price of $298. All Samsung Zero Client devices can be found at select Samsung resellers and channel partners. Local availability can be determined by calling 1-866-SAM-4BIZ or by visiting samsung.com/virtualdesktop.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
